Re: Don Furner says John Bateman has permission to have negotiations with other clubs

Honestly, I'm not trawling back through all of this. Have we spoken about how Sia can't be far off retirement/downgrade, most folk would be happy to have Dunamis go the way of the sacrificial goat.

Re: Matt Frawley elevated to Canberra Raiders top 30

Good move, 3rd string half. Definitely an upgrade on Hingano..... probably signed for the price of a ham sandwich.

Re: What's your strongest possible Canberra Raiders 2020 line up?

I like big red to start. I think Sia needs to stay on bench. Three middle? Depends on what kind of utility we take I guess. I think Sia, Lui, Young/Guler, Leilua/Scott is the likely mix

Re: Canberra Raiders prepared to let grand final centre Joey Leilua walk

I'm fine with it. He's on big money. Cotric gets a steady shot in the centres. Simonson gets the starting spot he deserves, and we get $650k to upgrade Wighton and co. Things could pan out worse for us post GF.

Re: Jack Hetherington heading to Canberra Raiders

The Raiders have said publicly they wish to re-sign Luke Bateman. I hadn't seen that. Surely, his value to the club has dropped in the interim. Surely even Luke must look at the talent ahead of him in the roster and realise he wont get much more than minimum wage... There would have to be more oppo...

No chance it’s gonna be anything other than Sezer/Williams this weekend. And this is the exact reason why we have Williams on our books. Only real question is how the bench is made up.

Re: Joey Leilua out for the year?

We're really limping around at the moment. If he's gone for the year I'd say Bateman too centre and Tapine too second row when they're fit. In the mean time Oldy has been solid enough in his time here.
